The abandoned city of Pripyat, home to the infamous Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, lies on the Pripyat River in northern Ukraine, near the Belarus boarder. Three days after the April 26, 1986, nuclear accident, Landsat 5 acquired this image of the region. The power plant explosion and ensuing fire released highly radioactive nuclear fallout into the atmosphere, affecting region tens to hundreds of miles from the plant. This natural color Landsat 5 image uses TM bands 3,2,1. Credit: NASA/USGS

In the 25 years that Landsat 5 has been in orbit, the desert city of Las Vegas has gone through a massive growth spurt. The outward expansion of the city is shown here with a series of false-color images. The dark purple grid of city streets and the green of irrigated vegetation grow out in every direction into the surrounding desert. These images were created using reflected light from the shortwave infrared, near-infrared, and green portions of the electromagnetic spectrum (Landsat 5 TM bands...

The vast metropolis of Mexico City is located in Mexico's tectonically active high plateaus, about 500 miles south of the Texas border. The sprawling city, featured here on Jan. 31, 1985, experienced a massive earthquake in September 1985 that killed 10,000 residents. Today Mexico City is home to nearly 9 million people. This natural color Landsat 5 image of Mexico City was created using Thematic Mapper bands 3,2,1. Credit: NASA/USGS

Landsat 5 captured this natural-color image of Quebec just after the Great Blizzard of March 1993, a nor'easter also called the ''white hurricane.'' The storm brought heavy precipitation, severe winds, and freezing temperatures to an area stretching from Northern Florida to Eastern Canada. Credit: NASA/USGS

In this image series from Lake Mead, we can see the diminishing water level of the reservoir between the 1990s and 2009. The red color in the lower right image shows where the water level has dropped. These false-color images use TM bands 7,4,2. Credit: NASA/USGS
